#2 In a Four Issue Limited Series
Optimus Prime vs. Megatron!

The Decepticons dismantle a nuclear power plant in search for fuel and materials for a new base. Meanwhile, Buster Witwicky persuades his father Sparkplug to repair the badly damaged Bumblebee.
Sparkplug agrees to assist Autobots by converting Earth fuel to a form usable by Transformers. Unfortunately this information is also heard by the Decepticons, who launch a full-scale attack towards the Witwickys' auto shop in order to capture Sparkplug. This leads to the one-on-one fight between Optimus Prime and Megatron.

"Megatron.. Surrender the human or suffer the consequences!"
"In a word, optimus.. NO!"
